>> LEWES (Aug. 25, 2015) – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife has confirmed another new state record in the Delaware Sport Fishing Tournament’s new category for blueline tilefish: a 22.2-pounder caught on Aug. 18 in the Atlantic Ocean’s Baltimore Canyon, some 65 miles offshore. This latest catch eclipses two previous state record blueline tilefish this summer, a 19.7-pounder caught June 19 also in Baltimore Canyon, and a 21.8-pounder caught July 25 in Norfolk Canyon.
Andrew Orr of Drumore, Pa., caught the new record 37-inch-long blueline tilefish aboard the private vessel Last Chance with Capt. Bob Orr at the helm. The record catch was initially confirmed at Hook ‘em & Cook ‘em Bait and Tackle in Rehoboth Beach and then verified by Officer Adam Roark, DNREC Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police. The catch is recognized as a state record since the fish was caught aboard a boat that left from and returned to a Delaware port.
